My review of The Village of River Oaks

Our family was able to do an in person tour with The Village and it was a great experience we would highly recommend this community. In the end our loved one decided to choose another community based on the location, but this community was still a great option.

Highly recommend!

Our families experience so far has been great, the staff members there are exceptional and very professional. They did great with the move in coordination as well as introducing our loved one to new people even during the covid pandemic. With this past winter storm and it knocking out power, we thought they responded well with adversity. They did a great job staying in constant communication with our family every day. Overall they handled the situation great.

A Very Good, Clean, Friendly Community

This might not be something they can control so much, but diversity is not really a strong suit here. I wish they had a little bit more of a diverse community. But the staff have been very friendly, from the receptionist desk, to the director, to the concierge/valet parking - they're all very, very friendly. I feel very good that they all have a sense of understanding of how to relate to older residents, and they're very helpful to the residents. When I go inside, I don't smell odors down the hallways, and it always seems to be clean. They empty the trash bins frequently in the common areas. It's well lit, and not dark. It's just a very clean and easy to navigate space. I feel like activities is an area they could improve upon. They don't have a broad range of activities for people with different levels of ability, especially those who are less able.

Nice facility but a little closed in. No views except nearby buildings.

Very safe, friendly, and accommodating

The staff is wonderful. When my mother first moved it, they were very understanding of her recently being widowed. They have wonderful activities, both at the residence and as outings. The dining area is very nice, and the portions are generous.

Mom is Happy

I like this setup for independent living for mom because they have caregivers on site if the caregiver we have couldn't make it or something which is a nice backup. It is a pretty, nice , new building. The food is terrific. Since it is so new it's not full yet but soon maybe more residents will come. The staff is so nice and accommodating. They have a rooftop terrace that has potted plants and trees are coming soon. Mom's room is overlooking that.

This is a very nice new place but a bit pricey. I don't think it is the place for my Mom.

It was very nice, but expensive. I would recommend it, but it isn't right for my mom.

We Still Had to Search

Our main thing to find in a community was a large room that fits a king size bed and 3 meals a day all within a reasonable price. This is a brand new facility and very nice. It's in the city and my parents got nervous about the traffic. The room was smaller but they did offer 3 meals a day. Everybody was nice when having the tour. The staff were able to answer my question and we got a good view of the community. They were professional and overall it was a good tour.
